    Hey guys can you treat your girl better I’m tired of ignoring her and her stupid problems because you can’t just take her to a ******* pumpkin patch, your boy is just trying to play music and kill it on overwatch

  • Snackztf SnackzFN (@Snackztf) reported

    My mechanics aren’t even bad in overwatch, everyone else is just so much farther ahead of me, almost everyone has a 2 year start on me. Once I figure out the exact playstyle I need to adapt to and fix my positioning flaws and learn more game sense, I will be in your backline.

  • momma_zelda MommaZelda 🍃 (@momma_zelda) reported

    @AndrewDoorman @bc201401 I was target-spawncamped for several rounds of Overwatch competitive. I don't know why, but I know that he let everyone else out of spawn except me. Blizzard support can't even be bothered to respond "Sorry, I can't help you with that issue." It's so embarrassing.

  • Beniled Beniled (@Beniled) reported

    @BlizzardCS So... can't load Overwatch... Unknown Error. All other games load fine.

  • MurdongNippals Ganesha Jungle S+ (@MurdongNippals) reported

    @Slasher As an Overwatch fan, it’s a very conflicting issue for me. I love the game to death and have high hopes for what they do this Blizzcon. However Blizzard’s management is currently under a shit fiesta of bad ideas

  • ShiroiSakuraVR ShiroiSakuraVR (@ShiroiSakuraVR) reported

    My biggest problem that i have atm is online games...i make so much negative experiences the last 1-2 weeks with random players in League of Legends or Overwatch that i lose the motivation and fun to play such games. And all my Story Games are on the PS4 and Nintendo Switch only

  • Stalgrim Stalgrim (@Stalgrim) reported

    If there's an Overwatch 2 it'll be a chance to finally fix the core mechanics of the game that make it so frustrating to play. That's what I'm wishing for.

  • CookiesNKitties CookiesNKitties (@CookiesNKitties) reported

    @literallyjuste @YongYea @CorruptedCast That's the problem. Your content with games like Rocket League and Overwatch comes from loot boxes so effort isn't really put in into actual new additions. They monetize the boxes and make like 10 new items stretch out for months. You'll still play the same old maps and stuff.

  • IamSean95 Sean (@IamSean95) reported

    @Blizzard_Ent Fix overwatch!

  • stewnigma Stew (@stewnigma) reported

    The problem with Overwatch is now its become extremely difficult to ever win a game. Your looking at maybe 1 win in 10 games. It's quickly becoming no fun at all. #Overwatch

  • jolfe_ Jolfe OW? (@jolfe_) reported

    Stop saying support T2. It is a awful system, so don't support it, fix it. Watching gauntlet isn't that hard, that is why everyone said it then. Atm tier 2 overwatch is just a farm system for future esports games.

  • ruby_ebook faker ruby (@ruby_ebook) reported

    fix overwatch mmr loss 2k17

  • pandizzy_ttv Pandizzy (@pandizzy_ttv) reported

    Ugh....3 hours in and still trying to fix my computer. Sorry everyone! I'll stream tomorrow to make up for it...but itll be an Overwatch stream haha.

  • GFAnBi AnBi (@GFAnBi) reported

    @EbonicPlagueBB fchamp "playing overwatch with no lag" is killing me

  • NefariousLombax NefariousLombax (@NefariousLombax) reported

    @PasadenaAmour I'm a Virgo, so I got Crash. It's almost like it was destined to be. (Also very cheeky touch having Overwatch as Cancer.)

  • darcyrayn darcy 🦋 (@darcyrayn) reported

    Overwatch need to FIX ITS ******* QUEUEING SYSTEM!!!!!!

  • LandonThaler spooklemay (boo) (@LandonThaler) reported

    Honestly blows my mind how toxic the #Overwatch community is. They need to do something when #Overwatch2 comes out to truly combat these players... Solo queue is unplayable with random opponents causing issues. And don’t even get me started on being punished for playing dps...

  • KristalTepig Kristal is spooky baby kitty girl! 🛡️🌸 (@KristalTepig) reported

    Stream today is cancelled. I'm never streaming ranked Overwatch again because it made my internet crash

  • discord99057751 discordiabot (@discord99057751) reported

    Med: Hacker Of Friend - Similar to Overwatch, but instead of Pharah's rockets, add some fan service from Skyrim, namely the Dragonborn's shouts.

  • natosaurus8_8 Natosaurus (spookyseason) (@natosaurus8_8) reported

    @MatttGFX Don't know why people aren't paying attention to the one from 2017 which hasn't been broken so far, and predicts overwatch 2 for 2020, something that's popping up in a lot of recent leaks.

  • Ezra_Ash FABULOUZZ (@Ezra_Ash) reported

    @PlayOverwatch I bought overwatch on the switch and I am very disappointed. it's slows down too often to be enjoyable. Even if you get to play without lag or slowdown then you still lose cause role queue locks the idiots to the important roles. I'd refund this trash if I could.

  • bsdlp jon (@bsdlp) reported

    hey @ESPN_Esports your overwatch page seems to be broken, if i click on esports -> overwatch it gives me a year-old article and when i keep scrolling it starts showing me LoL articles...

  • HaruhiAkizuki Springday Autumnmoon (@HaruhiAkizuki) reported

    "I used to want an Overwatch character in Smash, but now that they're sucking up to China, I don't want it anymore." - Guy who's still asking for Crash and Spyro in Smash

  • JKG_XIII 🌬🌊🌏🏔🙇🏻‍♂️🤔🧐💭💥🤴✝️ (@JKG_XIII) reported

    Idk man me and Jared might just 4 more people that like to win on overwatch. And we could probably be a serious problem lol

  • RedHotBlaziken 🔥RedHotBlaziken🔥 (@RedHotBlaziken) reported

    @madchaser_ @D8bitGaming That's the problem. You were playing Overwatch.

  • hal_v69 glue eating dva main (@hal_v69) reported

    why do i even play overwatch anymore. im on a 10 game lose streak. fix the ******* matchmaking

  • MarcRuckus Marcus Jackson (@MarcRuckus) reported

    @IGN I told everyone that celebrated that it would stink. But "switch runs Splatoon no problem," was what they told me. Splatoon and Overwatch are two drastically different games.

  • FlackPenzer FlackPenzer (@FlackPenzer) reported

    @paulina_lamar @PaladinsGame I would come back to the game surely one day when Overwatch will have tired me but first I want they do something for the crash it becomes unbearable. You know that at any moment you can crash and thus disadvantage your team and lose

  • ManBearPigIets Xander Cage (@ManBearPigIets) reported

    @Djxyz0 That’s a shame, I swap between overwatch (60) and Destiny (30) and can’t even spot it unless I try very hard. Frame drops and input lag are the main things I notice, stable 30 is unnoticeable. When people talk about 120+ fps and act like it matters, they’re clearly full of shit.

  • RembourrageX John Louis CL⚡️✨ (@RembourrageX) reported

    @NEFURIOUS_SKULL I can see why your upset about this, hell overwatch displays the same problem that blizzard has in all of their games. Poor writing and character structure. It’s like you have a shit ton of ocs but only focus on two.

  • deltaartavi Delta Draws (@deltaartavi) reported

    This is what an American artist who runs his own Discord channel and has like 3 modswho all play Overwatch while talking about his family issues when people only wanted to see two curves representing breasts but he always says "sorry, my pen pressure isn't working" looks like.

  • VolkeOW Volke (@VolkeOW) reported

    Someone deadass just DDOS'd Overwatch Liquipedia

  • matthewkenealy Matthew Kenealy (@matthewkenealy) reported

    @pcgamer Overwatch could easily change their funding model so that you just get a set amount of coins and random items from levelling up in lootboxes and then just sell skins etc. at price points based on rarity. That way there would be no way to buy lootboxes and avoid this issue.

  • Fr3sh_OW Jonathan🔜My House (@Fr3sh_OW) reported

    @FreeShavacodoo Hopefully overwatch 2 fix's this shit

  • Jed05 Spooky Jed Whitaker aka DJ Fartbox.MP4 🅙 (@Jed05) reported

    @luka_etoile I liked Battleborn, a lot. I just think the problem was Randy Pitchford and trying to pit it against Overwatch.

  • IAMTHELAUW LauW (@IAMTHELAUW) reported

    Well I mean, we already knew a new Overwatch game was in the making. Due to the success of the Archives Event, but with the problems of the current engine not being made for PvE, it was said they were working on a whole PvE OW game.

  • ourladyofwar If I only cared. (@ourladyofwar) reported

    @t8styham Everything is better than OverWatch at this point hopefully they can finally fix it

  • Itmechr3 ICE must be destroyed 🏴 (@Itmechr3) reported

    @falsettoxiv @Falcon87456 @BumbDastard the spectator client is top down, which avoids the Overwatch problem and honestly looks pretty good (though it ******* breaks all the time because Hirez doesn't give a shit about their game having bugs since it doesn't effect skin sales)

  • Wolf_King93 Wolf King (@Wolf_King93) reported

    @BlizzardCS I like the update in Overwatch to balance it out when selecting heroes but I'm having problems finding a match. I tried yesterday for over an hour and couldn't find a single match amd same thing today. I only found a match when I chose tank but I don't play tank

  • VynKami Nevermore (@VynKami) reported

    I don’t care if this ruins any possible chance of having a career in Overwatch but **** Falcon Movers. Dogshit trash ass scamming company ran by complete retards who somehow have worse communication issues than bronze players.

  • Deivis_101 Deivis (@Deivis_101) reported

    @FPScarol QC as itself is no a problem, game itself is quite fun, but I can't get behing Overwatch type ultimates on my Quake game. Granted they are not insta win button as in OW, but still seems out of place and makes all characters unnecessarily uneven.

  • honorabletnote_ ikeepitreal 🏴‍☠️ (@honorabletnote_) reported

    automatic fix for overwatch. players with high endorsement levels get priority when it comes to getting games.

  • SevenFisher SevenFisher (@SevenFisher) reported

    Mfw when I want to play overwatch for bit I forgot I didn't take off auth thing on my phone (that's not working right now) so I guess no overwatch for bit OH WELL Sent them request to get it removed, but dunno how long that'll take.

  • ArachneBabe Large Lactose (@ArachneBabe) reported

    Overwatch ruined itself for me I can’t stand the game even casually I just lose my mind **** Overwatch stupid broken ass useless game. **** Overwatch 2 too not even wasting my money AHDJAHSJA

  • gamer_taytay gamer taytay 🎮 (@gamer_taytay) reported

    I’m sad Overwatch is a dead game 😵 I’ll still follow OWL, but hopefully they can fix the shield meta. Kind of defeats the purpose of a FPS when you can’t click foreheads through 2400hp damage shields

  • Sand_Wic SandWic (@Sand_Wic) reported

    @avizenith ok yea i got no clue whats going on with it ik fort had that gpu issue, but in terms of overwatch idk why thats happening

  • Rozaporx RozaPorx (@Rozaporx) reported

    I have a computer to fix but **** today idk what to do I'm gonna drink and play overwatch and then hug my handsome man when he comes home

  • YubNub4 imacrab (@YubNub4) reported

    @zMCRK @TierMaker Please be joking. Fortnite is awful compared to Overwatch. Sure, constantly updated. But also constantly broken. I think this is satire but if it isn't then there you go.

  • The_X_Button ジェノ・ネヴァー・エヴァー (@The_X_Button) reported

    for real, if i could actually shoot the stuff i aim at in this first person shooter, i probably never woulda switched to overwatch in 2016 the shooting is a legitimate problem in tf2 and it ruins the game

  • ClaudreTV Claudre (@ClaudreTV) reported

    I'll stream Overwatch too if they ever get their problems fixed. Mostly the cheaters and the shitty double shield/bunker meta.

  • ElonHuskar Gym-going Waifu ;–3 (@ElonHuskar) reported

    @FionnOnFire what about riots culturing NA players specifically to act like little babies🙊 it's not quite overwatch level, but CS:GO and Dota don't have same "anti-competition" problem to the same extent if u wanna "invest" u need to take on shitty "culture", just American dolla' wont halp

  • Lentertament The Guy with Bunny Ears. (@Lentertament) reported

    @JOHNofWAR Overwatch not working on the Switch. Next you'll be saying Blizzard doesn't actually care about every voice matters.

  • Xeviiii_ Xeviiii (@Xeviiii_) reported

    Whatever happens at BlizzCon is really going to make or break Overwatch. I went from playing hours on end everyday, to not even really caring to get on anymore. Fix your shit, Blizzard. Also make OG dive come back.

  • marcosflowers Marcos Flores (@marcosflowers) reported from St. Louis, Missouri

    @AirJapes @EASPORTSFIFA @eMLS Comp scene is a mess. LoL, Overwatch, csgo, Halo, no other game has pay to win mechanics in their comp scene, broken servers, bad prizes, and a weekend game mode. I actually feel bad for players that are in comp fifa. But not if they’re blatantly cheating

  • overthehillls Jack Hatter (@overthehillls) reported

    @CptnInappropri8 I have the same problem when I go from overwatch to Destiny....lol

  • baxbooksdeux Creature from the Bax Lagoon (@baxbooksdeux) reported

    sometimes you're on an awful team but one thing redeems the round, like a super aggro Soldier 76 named 'TheMcChicken' every time his name popped up in the kill feed I lol'ed ty for your service, 👑 #Overwatch

  • LShaddowstorm LTD_ShaddowStorm (@LShaddowstorm) reported

    Sadly I have not been active I have been fixing a few recording problems I will start working on a overwatch or fortnite montage later this week

  • FreeShavacodoo FREE SHAVACOBOO👻 (@FreeShavacodoo) reported

    I find it crazy how even major Overwatch streamers are voicing about how bad of a state Overwatch is in but nothing has been done about it. Blizzcon is probably going to be the final straw for almost everyone so it better fix everything and more or this game is done for.

  • Turboherne Toni -Turboherne- (@Turboherne) reported

    @PapaVey I did try tackling the issue by playing Overwatch and other similar games with a mic some years ago, but I just never got comfortable doing so. It just feels physically impossible to get the voice out if I'm all by myself 💦💦

  • imasukaiTV Imasukai 🦉 (@imasukaiTV) reported

    @Nattadash Yep, done all that. I did have some ad glitch, Overwatch was lit up like it had a notification but there was nothing there, switching to another server let me clear that, but the rest of the client is still stuffed.
